Dora and The Lost City of Gold

I think I speak for the majority of the population when I ask “Who asked for a live action Dora the Explorer movie?” Dora and the Lost City of Gold brings a 16 year old Dora who leaves the jungle and must go to high school while her parents attempt to find the lost city of gold. While struggling to fit in, Dora along with her cousin Diego and friends are kidnapped and brought to the Jungle. They must work to find Dora’s parents, and stay one step ahead of the bad treasure hunters. What follows is The Good, The Bad, and   The Spoilers   of Dora and the Lost City of Gold. The Good To your surprise, I actually have some good things to say about the live action Dora movie. First and foremost, it did make me laugh. They do a good job of play up the fact that Dora is socially awkward which makes for some funny run-ins when at a normal high school. There are also quite a few humorous moments and good jokes that kept the kids and the adults in the theater laughing. I especially liked that the

Throwback Review: Hobbs and Shaw

When you have a movie franchise as successful as The Fast and The Furious has been, it was only a matter of time before we saw some form of spin-off. When I saw the first Hobbs and Shaw movie trailer, I thought is looked action packed and was kind of excited to see it. When the second trailer came out my opinion change to corny and terrible. Hobbs and Shaw is about this unlikely duo teaming up to find Shaw’s sister and keep a deadly virus out of the wrong hands. The problem is the bio-enhanced Brixton Lore, played by Idris Elba, who will stop at nothing to get the virus for his employers. What follows is The Good, The Bad, and  The Spoilers  of Hobbs and Shaw. The Good This movie was HILARIOUS! There was something amazing about the love/hate relationship between Johnson’s and Statham’s characters. Some of the funniest times in the film are when these two are just staring at each other, hurling insults back and forth. The chemistry between these two is similar to the chemistry Dwayne Jo


When I first read that there was going to be a comedy based around an Uber driver, I thought it was a joke. Then I saw the trailer and realized that it was actually happening. This movie is based around Stu, part full-time retail worker and part Uber driver. Stu unknowingly accepts a job ushering a LAPD detective around town. He unknowingly and unwillingly is dragged into a dangerous and funny adventure. What follows is The Good, The Bad, and The Spoilers of Stuber. The Good Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani are an amazing duo. The way they play off each other exemplary and keep the laughs rolling. While Stu is so soft spoken, nervous, and unsure; we have Detective Vic whose loud, demanding, and a classic “doesn’t play by the rules” cop. The action sequences were surprisingly good for a comedy. Bautista was given plenty of opportunity to show off his wrestling background with some good hand-to-hand combat. One of my favorite, if a little far-fetched, was the scene in the Vet clinic. T

The Lion King (2019)

One of the most anticipated movies of 2019 has to be the remake of one of Disney’s greatest classics “The Lion King”. The idea of a CGI/Live Action Lion King sounded exciting and almost everyone, whether they were for or against the remake, planned to see this one. The story follows the original exactly. Simba’s father dies and he runs away out of guilt. He makes new friends but must return to save his home from his evil uncle. What follows is The Good, The Bad, and  The Spoilers  of The Lion King (2019). The Good Whether you are a supporter of this remake or not, you have to agree that this movie is beautiful to the eye. The CGI in this film is at a level of its own. The textures and movements of the animals, the realistic vegetation, and the flowing water look entirely real. This movie is a great example of just how far digital effects and CGI has come. I also think that voice acting and singing of this movie was very well done. While they may not be the originals, it Is apparent th
